Mistakes... Everyone makes them. We are only human. Some of our mistakes are small... like the times you stay up till 2 am studying for a test that you end up failing because you are too tired to think. Others are so catastrophic that they change your life.... forever.... Maddison regrets not listening to her parents, not being a 'good girl' and not staying at home like she was supposed to instead of sneaking off with her friends for a Spring Break getaway. How she wishes she could turn back time; then maybe she wouldn't be in the nightmare she is in now. Kidnapped and taken to a different country unaware of where she is or what these men want with her. Maddy's parents can't help her, in fact they aren't even aware she is in Mexico. Who can save her? Or can she save herself?

This book grabed me and held me still in my seat till I finied it.  Page by every page I read, I cried, I laughed.  I couldn't stop reading and by the last page I was dying for more.
The topic of this book is about an every day occurrence and a topic I think everyone needs to know more about.  Kidnapping and sex trafficking rings are a hard subject to read about, but this book is stunning in the way it is written. 

The Characters

Maddison (Maddy) - She is our main character.  She is a lot stronger than she thinks she is.  I connected right away with Maddy, she doesn't see herself in the light that everyone else does.  She doesn't see how much she is loved.  She see's herself as a girl that always follows the rules and never has any fun.  But, one mistake changes everything for her and things aren't as they seem. 

Aimee- Is Maddy's best friend.  Aimee is the yang to Maddy's Yin so to say.  She is the polar opposite but the complete each other in their sisterly ways.  Aimee is the girl who has the money and loves to party unlike Aimee.  She helps Maddy come up with all the schemes to get Maddy what she really wants.

Dalton - I fell in love with Dalton from the moment he showed up on the pages of the book.  He is so strong and so sweet to Maddy.  He is the one that helps her through so much.  And also gives her a very special gift and Maddy and him share it together! (trying not to give way to much away.) Dalton is a very handsome, fit young man, that is way older than Maddy. 
Jack - What can I say about Jack that wont give to much away.  Hmm there isn't much to say except he is very handsome and Maddy falls for him right away! He ends up being Maddy's first love and I will say this when you first fall in love it clouds your vision to the imperfect only showing the perfection of the other person.

So my overall rating of this book would have to be:

I loved the book there is no way it should get anything under a 5 puppy ratting.  I really hope the writers of this book write the next one soon! Can't wait for it!

I also give the cover a: 

The cover fit the book perfectly! Love it.  I was intrigued just by looking at it!

I can't wait for more of this story.  I need to know what happens next.  I have never cried so much reading a book in my life, but this book is amazing for that.  To be able to bring those emotions out of a reader makes the writers a pair of great writers!
